Slasher.com could prove to be just the kind of flick that leaves fans pumping the breaks on online dating. The trailer, which we’ve got below, looks compelling, and the idea behind the story fits right into modern society, where the internet provides a shocking level of ambiguity.
Chip Gubera directs and co-writes with Chelsea Andes, Slasher.com combines the time-honored tradition of young people facing unfathomable horrors in the wilderness with the everyday horror of meeting people online. Ben Kaplan (ADDicted, Wingman Inc) and cinematic neophyte, Morgan Carter star as the hapless would-be couple, anchoring a cast supported by R.A. Mihailoff (Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, Hatchet II), Jewel Shepard (Return of the Living Dead) and Grammy winner Delious Kennedy.
Now, get a look at that trailer below, and take note: Slasher.com will tour on the festival circuit, screening next at the Bloody Horror International Film Festival in Ottawa and Grindhouse Planet Film Festival in the UK.
Synopsis: At a time where online dating could prove fatal, Jack and Kristy decide they’re ready meet in person. Aiming for an adventurous first date, they plan a weekend getaway to the woodlands of rural Missouri. While discovering each other, they soon learn of the terrorizing horrors that the forest has in store.
